Features of the Zip Hydrotap G4 under counter taps
1. Minimal energy costs: With “Sleep Mode” active for 10 hours in 24, standby power costs are less.
2. Air-cooled, not water-cooled: To conserve water, the under-sink system is air cooled instead of water cooled, therefore eliminating water waste.
3. Sleeps when inactive: Can be pre-set to power-down after 2 or 4 hours of non-use, maintaining boiling water at a hygienic temperature of >64°C. Recovers to pre-set boiling temperature when re-used.
4. Power-PulseTM technology: New energy-saving technology applies full power to heat boiling water only during periods of heavy use. Cuts back to micro-pulse power during light usage periods or when unused. Also maintains boiling water temperature more precisely than ever achievable before.
5. Programmable 24/7 timer: Can disconnect the power to preset periods during the day, evening or weekends – caters for two on/off cycles daily for each seven-day period.
6. Two year warranty
Zip Hydrotap installation.
Must be installed by a qualified plumber in accordance with instructions supplied with the product and with South African plumbing regulations. Water supply must be potable (drinkable), and deliver at least 2 litres per minute at a minimum dynamic pressure of 70kPa. If static pressure exceeds 600kPa, a pressure reducing valve must be fitted. An isolating valve must be installed between the water supply and the under-sink system. The under-sink system must be located directly beneath the tap – max up to 1000mm away. Under-sink tubing must be taut for proper drainage – and never be looped or coiled.
Plugged to a 15 amp GPO within 1000 mm. Power supply – 220 V to 240 V AC 50/60 Hz. Install in accordance with South African safety regulations.
The under-sink system must be installed with ventilation clearances 50 mm left and right, 220 mm above and 65 mm rear. The cupboard containing the under-sink system must be amply ventilated. Buffers supplied must be fitted to the inside of cupboard doors to prevent flush closure, creating an undetectable 4 mm airspace around each door.
Zip Hydrotap Font
The Zip Hydrotap I and II comes with an optional font. The font channels waste water into a drain which is connected to the sink outlet under the counter top. Ideal option if you want a clean work surface. The font is not required when installing the unit on top of a kitchen sink. However, it is recommended when installing directly on a kitchen work surface or on a bar counter, one should also install the font.
For residential use we recommend the Zip Hydrotap MinBoil Elite, which is more affordable with only slightly less capacity.
The Zip Hydrotap G4 BA is designed for boiling water and ambient water only and the Zip Chilltap is for cold water only.
The ChillMaster freestanding and wall hung are ideal for public area supplying chilled water to customers. Mostly used in schools, sports centres and community halls.
Zip GlobalPlus™ Water Filtration and standard filters
Water filtration is used in areas where white deposits are found around the tap spout, shower heads and small droplets found on sinks and inside of your shower. This is an indication of very high concentration of salts in your water making it “hard”. You will also notice that it is difficult for your water to foam once washing soap in added. The amount of scale and salts removed will depend on the amount that is in the water and the combination thereof. Using the Zip GlobalPlus water filtration in your kitchen and even bathroom will extend the life of your plumbing and appliances such as water heaters and kettles. The system does not allow enough water to flow through for use with showers and baths.
Sub-micron – Standard
Sub-micron filtration is standard and has the added benefit of removing micro-organisms such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. Not suitable for areas with excessively high levels of sediment in the water supply as this may require the filter to be changed more frequently than practical. In such areas, a five-micron filter may be substituted. Order code: 2330160 / 480577 replacement cartridge (new / old codes).
Five-micron – optional
The five-micron filter gives great tasting water because it removes general contaminants and sediment, plus chlorine taste and odour, but will not filter out parasites such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. Order code: 2330197 / 480633 replacement cartridge (new /old codes).
The single built-in triple-action sub-micron water filter:
- Removes micro-organisms as tiny as one thousandth of a millimeter.
- Reduces chlorine and other contaminants.
- Removes particulates contaminating the water supply.
- Inhibits mineral-scale accumulation in the boiling water storage tank.
- Provides great-tasting, crystal-clear boiling and chilled drinking water.
- Does not filter out minerals or any fluoride added to the water supply.
The water filtration system is recommended for
- Zip HydroBoil
- HydroBoil Pro
- Chilltap and
- Chiller systems (ChillMaster and EconoMaster)
- Kwikboil water heaters
Water filtration must be used in hard water areas to reduce scale build up and prolong element and thermostat life span.
